I just wanted to let you know a lot of us from the charlotte forum are following your report. It has been a very intresting read and I like the real life stories you are adding as you recount your adventures on the road alone, just you and your bike. I myself have experineced many of the same feelings while touring alone on the open road. It is something you can never explane untill you have been there yourself. Looking forward to the rest of the report.
